Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

I hope to see Mel by the end of the week. Here's the place she wants me to buy for her summer cottage.



Just a couple million payments to go and it's all hers.

Almost forgot - it comes complete with three pool boys.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

So 3 pool boys for the house, how many cabin boys for the boat? I just love how Gary treats me!
Back in Dallas today and fly back to Miami tomorrow.
I am taking applications for all positions.

I'm good for the prone or reclined position.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Marathon, finally! Sunny, warm, beautiful, great winds, fantastic weather - everything a sailor wants. The prices, however, are somewhat high, but I guess that's the price you pay for being in paradise.

Cheers,

Gary

Almost forgot about the pirates in South Florida.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

The most entertaining thread I've read in a long time around here. Great trip, great detail, great pics, adventure of a lifetime to me.

Makes me want to run away on the boat.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Hi

The photos are great but could you please put a location on the next ones please?

I am doing the same route and I am pretty well lost, so though these places may be obvious to a local I'm stuffed if I know where they are

The pirate ships were in St Augustine.... I know because when I was anchoring in front of some dopey old castle they started firing cannons at me and then pirate ships did the same. Scared the crap otta me!

I fired a few flares at the bastards and they took off.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

We came in really late looking for an anchorage for the night a few weeks ago. I brought my boat about and followed that Pirate Ship in to a really great sheltered area. The ICW is a pain with all the bridges and waiting for openings. We had come over from Glades, across Okeechobee in a gale, then down from St.Lucie to Noname harbour at Biscaine Bay waiting for a crossing to West End. Good times.

Great thread!
